28 (who?)

Yearning for birds –
the reminder of anchors in
each half-moon cresent
so lovingly carved into my soles.

And you play hopscotch in my veins -
the ones forbidden now to bleed -
until I am beaten blue and flat

but there are sparrows in my brain
among cerebral cortex clouds,
and that should be enough...
only it isn’t.

sorry: i'm spamming. just needed to write...

and since there may be some confusion -
half-moon crescents: fingernail marks

I'm Lunulae. Half-moon crescents. How could I not favorite? Birds, bones and moons--my kind of imagery. Flows really well. Don't know if you're looking for critique, just ignore the following if you aren't: love the first line, absolutely adore it. Would have liked a creative alternative for "lovingly." The anchors and soles are very unique. Hopscotch is pretty original too. Sparrows in my brain, very, very lovely. Last two lines were a bit of a let down, although maybe that was intentional given the content? Could be improved upon, but what can't? Enjoyed reading it.

Oh my. You are just marvelously lovely. :heart::heart:

I really appreciate the time you took to leave me such wonderful, helpful words!! I'm so grateful, too, for the fact that you offered a bit of critique. I am always in need of tips and lessons, so I'm happy to have the advice to grow from!


Your compliments, first, just killed me. Thank you for being so wonderful and nice! It is certainly appreciated with all of my heart! As for this piece being a letdown: I reread it several times, and I've come to the conclusion that you're right. It does seem to decrescendo in a way that's quite anticlimactic, and it really does kind of leave the reader wanting more. Thank you so very much for pointing this out! I'm really unsure of how to proceed in fixing it, however. I shall make a note to myself, and hopefully after leaving it for a while, I will maybe be able to remedy the situation. I do like the last line, and I do think it needs to have a somewhat negative feel to it, given my desired concept, however, I think it definitelyneeds work. As I said: I'm always learning, and I still have miles of improvement! Thank you so very much, again, for sharing your experience. I enjoyed reading through your words, and I'm just so incredibly grateful! :heart::love:
